wi stephen colbert. i want to thank the usw present for inging us together on this important issue. i would like to admonish the audience before i continue my statement that we need to maintain order and decorum thughout these proceedings, and to that end, i would like to remind all of the visitors in the audience that they should refrain from any manifestation of approval or disapproval of these proceedings or any other disruptive actions. if necessary, the capitol police are here to remove anyone who disrupts the hearing, but we certainly hope that will be necessy. part of what i learned over the years is that without a sufficient u.s. labor force, u.s. farmers have increasingly relied on undocumented workers. according to the department of labor, over 50% of all seasonal agricultural workers are undocumented. experts believe that due to underreporting, that number m actually be closer to 75%. critics argue that the shortage of u.s. agricultural workers could be solved by simply increasing wages and working conditions. as a longtime an ardent supporter of farmworkers, i would like n

envoy on north korean issues to south korea, japan, and china next week. stephen bosworth will visit seoul, tokyo and beijing in that order between sunday and thursday. u.s. assistant secretary of state philip crowley announced the trip on tuesday. the visit comes in advance of the likely meeting of deputies of the ruling workers party to pave the way for the eventual transfer of power in north korea. the u.s. is also expected to take up the issue of a resumption of the six-party talks with the three countries as china, which acts as the chair, has been pushing the five other members to restart the talks. crowley suggested, however, that bosworth's trip will not necessarily result in the immediate resumption of the talks. >> we will continue our consultations with the key parties in this process but i would suggest, as we have in the past, that it's north korea that needs to do what it can to create a better environment for our progress. >>> the japan coast guard is questioning the captain of a chinese fishing boat who is suspected of atempting to obstruct an inspection in japanese e

issues is well known and well regarded. i am happy that stephen colbert has joined that region of celebrities who will use their media position to benefit others. as you can see from mr. colbert's written testimony, he has taken the time to walk in issues of migrant farmworkers, and he urges reforms of our immigration laws. i am happy that the united farmworkers introduce me to mr. colbert, who i had not met before, so we could spend a day on a farm together. his actions are a good example of how using both levity and fame, a media figure can bring attention to a critically important issue for the good of the nation. i appreciate all of our witnesses' efforts to be with us today and their leadership in this area, and i hope that together we can find solutions to these pressing problems. i would now recognize our distinguished ranking member, stephen king, for his opening statements. >> i appreciate being recognized, and i am wondering how the eskimos got along for all those centuries without fresh fruit and vegetables if it is a national security issue. i would like to focus my
